help: Galloway running 'form' question

Jeff suggests more of a shuffle short stride form to help keep injuries down, and I get that, and think I like that but I have a question. It seems like when shuffling along in a jog with short strides I must be doing something wrong as it feels with that when my forward moving foot hits midfoot that I'm sliding / stopping as opposed to flowing. any pointers on how to overcome that? I dont know how to explain it but if you 'shuffle' your walk you are putting your shoe down but still moving forward so it feels like you are loosing momentum / putting undue wear and tear on the bottom of your feet. I wear NB 860's that our local store suggested, they fit me properly and dont know it if matters or not but I wear NB 'tech' socks. Just so you know what I'm wearing. Now, I am out of shape and just getting back in to working out / running. I just dont want to get into bad habits because they are sooo hard to break. It just feels like no matter what I had on running this way my feet would slide forward every stride and just cause all kinds of blisters on a long run.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions / things to look at or try.
